Property Description

Beautiful Tarureka Estate, established in 1868, could fulfil your dreams of owning a significant historic property along with a thriving wedding business. This rare opportunity includes a lovingly maintained 1870s two-storey homestead, an even earlier two-storey barn - now a restaurant and venue centre, a Victorian cottage, stables and a 4 acre fully established garden. Added to this amazing array is the fully fenced 4 acres of pasture with stream and pond complete with resident paradise ducks and pukeko.

Built in 1870 for the growing family of James and Elizabeth Donald, the beautifully maintained homestead, with its elegant staircase and wide verandas, is currently used to accommodate up to 18 guests in its 7 spacious bedrooms. The combined modern kitchen and family room and the generous living room have fireplaces and French doors looking onto the tennis court and stunning gardens.

The stunning totara Barn built in 1868 was used as a cowshed and stables until a family descendant decided in 1988 that the building would make a perfect restaurant. It now boasts a commercial kitchen, large bathrooms, a walk-in chiller, a fully equipped bar and staffroom. Upstairs the soaring totara ceilings provide a magical setting for indoor ceremonies and wedding receptions and downstairs with bar and dancefloor is perfect for after formalities partying.

The charming three-bedroom cottage was built in 1870. Sited in its own large picturesque garden, the cottage has a modern kitchen and open-plan living room with three bedrooms. The kitchen has been modernised, but there is plenty of opportunity to add your own touch to this delightful building.

The large historic stables are begging to be converted into guest accommodation, and currently provide amazing storage. Renowned in the wedding world, Tarureka Estate offers the new owner huge possibilities for further growing this exciting business. Sale price plus GST if any.
